What is Going On?

We are very confused here on the Farm.
Especially the publicist and the male person.
We have the two Rhode Island Red roosters and until now they have gotten along just fine.
And now for the last two days this has been going on









Can anyone tell the publicist why they would be fighting like this after living peaceably together for the last 8 months?

She is happy they are not attacking her but she does not want them attacking each other!


Crazy roosters!

  1. Um, is it mating season? Or maybe they are just in a bad mood.

  2. Looks like one decided to challenge the authority of the other. My lady's roos do this sometimes and always Angus wins, then Lyle leaves the issue alone for awhile.

  3. looks like they are re-working the totem pole order...when we had 11 roosters they did that all the time and challenged the boss of the day.

  4. Spring fever! I do seem to remember reading that the hormones are in fuller swing in Spring-time.

  5. I would say they are hitting their prime and one or the other wants the top post!

    Harrison our buck is a lot more aggressive now that he is in his prime, with the other males. He wasn't like that when he was younger.

    Your Roosters are all grown up now and looking to be top dog, erm I mean rooster...

  8. We don't know why they'd be fighting but were amazed they didn't make a peep since they are usually so loud.

  9. Somebody wants ALL the girlfriends and has decided to let it be known...the publicist may have to turn one fellow out or into coq-au-vin...

  10. I think your previous posters are correct. I know nothing about roosters but it makes sense that they would be fighting to be the leader.

  11. They are acting like Liddell vs Ortiz. This is the reason why you need to take cable out of the rooster coop!

  12. I agree with everyone else. I have one rooster I had to kick out of the coop because he had killed one and was starting on the next. They do not like to share their girls.

  13. I'm with Texan--I think when they reach maturity, they fight to be the alpha rooster.

    Have you ever read Jon Katz (Bedlam Farm)? He had an old rooster and the younger rooster (his son) nearly killed him. In the end, Katz had to shoot the son because he was getting really aggressive. I think you can only have one rooster to prevent this type of thing.

  14. I'd say they are establishing pecking order

  17. Its a guy thing. Any time testosterone is involved this is what happens. You know how two little boys can play soooo nicely with each other for years. Then along comes a pretty little girl and the chest pounding starts...
